The Charter Captains at Hook Dat Fishing Charters is happy to announce Red Snapper Season has arrived here in Southeast Louisiana. This week we took several groups out to the rigs to bang on some nice Red Snapper. The Snapper bite was good this past weekend and all of our boats were limiting out on Snapper quick. After getting our limits of Snapper and catching a few bonus Cobia we headed back in and got on some nice slot limit Speckled Trout and Redfish. We are happy, happy, happy that Snapper season is back. The weather has been great and we have been taking advantage of the great weather. Still catching some nice big trout near sandy bottom islands. Finding clear water is still key to finding good schools of trout and with the weather being great this week we have had some phenomenal charter fishing trips. Most trout this week were slot limit trout between 12" - 17", with a few big trout mixed in. Redfish are still easy to pattern and have been staying on redfish limits all week.
A few of us captains got to get out on the water with our family this week and enjoy some great fishing and family time. Whether you come fish with us or get out and do it yourself, get out there while the fishing is hot and get those kids fishing and make memories with them they will never forget!
